[PCG] Nvidia surprised the Titan outsold the year-old GTX 690 in just 3 months. - Page 33  

post #321 of 338
The 690 is the best dual gpu card ever made in terms of offering performance nearly twice as fast as a 680 and efficiency and acoustic wise. The singular issue I've always had with it was price. And that only because GK104 is a 256 bit part, So for a whopping $1,000 I could get a dual gpu card (relying on SLI profiles for it's performance) that had 2GB/256 bit and run right out of vram on super high resolution screen setups. The titan may be a bit slower, but I'll take 85% of the raw speed and 50% wider bus + 3 times the frickin vram any day. IMO a much better option for that much money and apparently the market agrees.

I think armando666 is pretty right on what he's saying.

I'll quote a part of the article to make you understand better.
Quote:
The fact the GTX Titan is essentially the same supercomputer part as the Tesla K20X means that it’s not just a card for gamers, but for the budding pro-graphics guys too. Having the ability to use the double precision floating point format, at speeds of around 1.3 TFLOPS, makes it one hell of a compute card.

And for less than half the price of the full-fat Tesla K20X.

“We made Titan with no constraints to what we were doing, and priced accordingly as well,” explains Berraondo. And with a wider market to aim at the GTX Titan just keeps on rolling. “We’re basically selling every one we can get our hands on.”

That makes sense now if 680 have more bus and vram then it would be a clear choice...

But i wouldnt bet on res higher than 1080P and hope to keep @ 60 avg with all the tutti frutti on for too long ie crysis 3 XD

Ding ding ding. Though it certainly isn't the best dual GPU card, that title has been passed on, and no longer belongs to nvidia.

That being said, the 690 is the obvious winner assuming you never go above about 1200p, perhaps 1440p... 1600p and beyond is really, really pushing the vram limits.

But, yet you did not buy one for yourself, even if you really believe that.
According to someone, you should not be posting your opinion here either.

I run 5760x1080 with everything as high as it goes and have a flawless gaming experience in every game I have. As far as graphical demands go that includes every single game ever, with the exception of crysis 3, and the new metro release.

Is it always 60 fps? Nope, but when it dips below 50 I almost never notice it. Hell, Crysis 1 is a joke at 5760x1080 and that is with 16xAA turned on... but again, only using in game settings, no third party stuff.

To me it is 60 or nothing even if i have to sacrifice some game settings..

Which is fine, I will do so myself to an extent if it gets too low.

But I honestly don't notice most significant framerate dips, it just always runs smooth.

Which is the same when you are running a dual setup configuration if you want to have a smooth experience..



See that image? take the horrible band cfx produce lets talk about 690 and titan..
Even that the 690 have a ticker band at that kind of performance "ms" its not visible to the end user...

And both titan and 690 have spikes so XD

See that is where I disagree, it is a very limited sample size, but I was playing one of the call of duty games or another on the dude's PC, it was running easily over 60 fps, but it just looked like crap.
